Project 365 - Day 42

This is an old farm in the countryside not far from my house. I really like those old kind of old farms, they seem to fully integrate in the environment, they look like giant rocks dropped on the grass. I was lucky that day, the sun was shining making the frsh green of the grass really pops out !

Project 365 - Day 41

I'm afraid I'll never be able to post regularly for my project 365, I'm really sorry for that ! Anyway, here's the next picture. I tried to go for a diagonal frame, followinf the direction of the vegetation and trying to get it going from one corner to the opposite corner.

Project 365 - Day 40

I was taking a walk, enjoying the sun, in an old abandoned quarry when I found this stone. It instantly catches my attention. The regularity of the lines amazed me and told that it was obviously used for something. I was with a friend, and while we were wondering what can were those lines, my friend suggested that it was maybe a cutting table on which the rocks were sawn. We'll probably never know the truth about it, but I really liked those lines in the rocks, the moss and the dead leaves on it, as well as the sunray in the background.

Project 365 - Day 39

I don't know how this things called. It is located on an old canal that is not in use anymore. Every lock on this canal has these kind of stairs. I don't know if it's of some use to the fishes. On every of these lock's stairs the water is flowing very fast, making it impossible to take a picture of them in front like I did here. Fortunately for me, there was just one were the water wasn't running, so I could position myself just in front of it and take this shot. I had already taken a picture of this one in the past, but as I was going for a walk and just passed in next to it, I decided to give another try.

Don't forget to check my photography website to see more of my photographs !

Project 365 - Day 38

A close up shot of my cat. He's a very nice little guy, and I tried to get a nice picture of him while he was quiet, which is seldom the case. I was aiming for a very close shot of his head, and here's the result...

Project 365 - Day 37

I found this old projector lamp in an abandoned factory I was exploring on an urbex trip. I had a great time in this factory though it was almost empty. In one of the halls, this lamp stood on the ground against a big rusted metal door. The texture and the colours of this door were marvellous, as you can see in the background of this shot.

You can see the full set on my urbex photography website.

Project 365 - Day 36

Last one from the abstract serie. I know I could have posted sooner, but I'm really busy, and it's not always easy for me to post my pictures on a daily basis. I'm really sorry about that, I hope you understand, the good point for you is that there's a lot of new pictures incoming, you just nedd to be patient ! ;-)

Project 365 - Day 35

Another one from the abstract photography serie that I took. On this one, I worked more on the geometric composition. I also decided to go for a high key style picture, making the lines and colours really pop out.

Project 365 - Day 34

Second abstract shot from abstract serie playing with colored inks and waters. I really like this one, because of its abstract look and its regular circle. It makes me think of an eye, some people told me that it looked like a strange door opened on the galaxy. I'm happy to see that everyone has its own interpretation of this picture. I think that's one of my best abstract shot so far. The only thing that I would change next time I try this kind of picture, is that I'd use a polarizing filter to prevent having my reflection appearing in the water (you can actually see my hand on this one...)

Project 365 - Day 33

I was willing to experiment with ink in water photography. Unfortunately for me, the experiment didn't turned out so well, and the results were not those I expected to have. I think mostly because my water container was round, transforming the water in a giant lens, making it impossible to get a sharp picture of the inks in the water. So I decided to adapt myself to the situation and transformed my failure in some abstract shot (yes, once again,... ;-) ). As I was a bit late on my project 365 planning, I took different kind of pictures. This is one of them, I'll post the others a bit later.

Project 365 - Day 32

Still working to improve my portrait photography skills. This time it's a shot of my youngest daughter. Once again, I used a shallow depth of field to try to create an intimate feeling with her. It lacks a bit of sharpness, but overall, I'm very happy with this portrait. I really like the expression that she's got on this picture !
